eh.

Yesterday I woke up with the worst sore throat ever. I took some meds and went back to bed. I had a list of things to do including; taking my car in for new brakes, grocery shopping and taking Kate to the doctor. I didn't feel like doing anything but there is no such thing as laying in bed and sleeping it off when you're a momma. There are things to do and I did them with my mommas help. Last night I became violently ill, definitely the stomach flu. It took me right back to September when I was sick with H1N1 and 9 months pregnant. Thankfully this time there was no pregnant part. This is not morning sickness friends! My sweet husband was such a doll and came home from work to find Kate and I in bed asleep. He took her for the night and was so sweet in trying to take care of me. He made me soup, jello and fruit which I ended up losing and was right there to rub my back as I laid on the bathroom floor crying and making weird sounds from being sick. I am feeling 90% better today, don't have much energy and still have a horrible sore throat but I am up and moving! Kate and I are laying in bed right now, it's so peaceful. Thank you to all who prayed for me, I definitely felt them! I have no clue where I got this from but it hit me fast. Hope you all stay well and healthy!

.nap time.

Thanks for the beautiful home grown flowers, Evelyn!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
